6.0: HOW HEAP AND PEBBLE TOOK ON THE WORLD AND WON

Created and Performed by Valentina Ceschi and Thomas Eccleshare

National Tour 2010  – THU 9 SEPTEMBER – FRI 12 NOVEMBER, 2010Winner of the Arches Brick Award and nominated for a Total Theatre Award at the Edinburgh Festival 2009,  

6.0: How Heap and Pebble Took on the World and Won is a prescient tale for our times, touching on pertinent themes of ecology and sport. Combining physical theatre, clowning and audience interaction, this is a delicate, funny, and touching exploration of how we cope with loss, on a human and on an environmental scale. It is the story of Heap Krusiak and Pebble Adverati, the greatest ice dancers of all time, who refuse to be defeated by a world that has run out of ice: instead they defiantly don their skates and perform their free dance, this time on a wooden floor, in theatres across the country.6.0: How Heap and Pebble Took on the World and Won was developed at the Battersea Arts Centre. It previewed at Latitude Festival as a Pick of the Pleasance, before premiering at the Edinburgh Fringe in August 2009 and will tour the UK in Autumn 2010.
